    I had a blast watching him taking control of the car! He made full speed runs, donuts and eights through the sand. The sand was flying everywhere! LoL! It is incredible to see his small hands on the big controller. He also helps out cleaning the car. I even let him take out screws so he learns not only to bash the car but also to maintain it. ...And I love to take the bug out on a BMX track in the neighborhood. Jumps! In short: we both have a lot of fun and smiles running from ear to ear!

    I just put some 1/8 scale aluminum buggy shocks under the pirate bug. 129 mm in the back and 109 mm in the front, with stiffer linear springs. Man, what a difference over stock shocks! Clearing 3 meter jumps, running through tall grass and heavy terrain is awesome now!

    Next mod will be widening this bug.

    Just some shots:

    I was originally going to make a Bajr Slash but the LHS didn't have that body. So I got a Proline Baja Bug body and painted up Wisconsin Badgers style for my daughter (junior this year). Tracked down decals on eBay. Maybe a little overboard on the decals... Haven't decided on what to do with the front and rear bumpers yet.

    The Pirate just keeps getting better & better.

    The Badger looks great in my opinion too. Good work. I hope your daughter enjoys it.

    There from the axial light bucket set they come with clear lenses i just painted them clear red.
    They were working but one stopped after i rolled it end over end only a wire but making up a new set for it,All the other lights are wired up 2 spots on front and i fitted red and blue flashers in roof spots there a bit
    cheesy but look good at night.

    Yes sir on that.... your new lid needs a battle scar or two so we won't refer to it as a shelf queen...

    I just hate to ding/scratch a new body, but after the first couple it's all good huh!

    Threw in one of the Bajr, too. If you use the PL bodymounts, you can slam the body right down on the shocks, although with the Bug body, I had to space the front mount back about 8mm and heat and bend it to get the right angle for the hood, and cut down all four thumbscrews for clearance.

    They are the new Duratrax 2.8" tires- they have four 5" treads, and four 4.3" treads, and chrome or black wheels. They are good bashing tires, although the foams are a little soft for my taste. The wheels are incredibly nice, and the glue job was perfect.
